Entry Ban to Turkey Details
Entry Ban to Turkey
Entry ban to Turkey is enforced within the scope of Article 9 of the Law on Foreigners and International Protection in case of violation of the legal period of stay (in case of exceeding the Residence Permit, Work Permit, Visa Period or Visa Exemption period). In addition to this situation, the General Directorate of Migration Management may prohibit the entry of foreigners who are outside of Turkey, but which it deems objectionable in terms of public order, public security or public health, if it deems necessary.
Although they have exceeded the legally allowed period, the Entry Ban to Turkey is not applied in cases where the following conditions are met:
Foreigners who want to leave the border gates voluntarily, even though they have exceeded the allowed period for up to 3 months, and have paid the administrative fines that have been imposed on them.
Foreigners who have violated the day, up to 3 months, for whom a deportation decision has been made, and who pay the administrative fines by going to the border gates to exit within this period.
Foreigners who have exceeded the statute of limitations for more than 3 months and who go to the border gates to leave the country voluntarily and pay the administrative fines, are subject to an Entry Ban between 1 month and 5 years. These prohibition periods are as follows:
In the cases listed below, an entry ban is imposed from 3 months to 5 years.
- Foreigners who do not pay the administrative fines when leaving the border gates voluntarily after exceeding their legal stay,
- Foreigners who are invited to leave the country after their legal stay period is exceeded, foreigners who do not leave the country within the time allowed for them and/or do not pay the administrative fine,
- Foreigners who have exceeded the legally recognized period for more than 3 months, for whom a deportation decision has been issued. (It does not matter whether the fine was paid or not.)
- Foreigners who do not leave the country within the period given to them even though their residence permit has been refused or cancelled. (It does not matter whether the fine was paid or not.)
- Foreigners who are admitted to the country on the condition that they apply for a residence permit within 10 days, but do not apply for a residence permit, because they use all days of the visa or visa exemption in accordance with the 90-day rule within 180 days. (It does not matter whether the fine was paid or not.)
- Foreigners who are subject to different obligations after the decision of the administrative oversight is terminated.
- Foreigners who are deported in the presence of on-duty personnel. (It does not matter whether the fine was paid or not.)
The Entry Ban durations applied in this context are as follows:
Timeout up to 3 months: 3 months ban
3 months – 6 months expiration: 6 months entry ban
6 months – 1-year expiration: 1-year entry ban
1 year – 2 years expiration: 2-year entry ban
Expiration of more than 2 years, 5-year entry ban
Even if the prohibition period applied to individuals has expired, foreigners who do not pay the penalties and receivables reflected on their parties are not allowed to enter Turkey.
